ADVANCED ROLE-BASED ACCESS CONTROL


Within an IT operation, different teams cover a wide variety of operations. In addition, managed service providers have the need to assign access to automatics in a targeted manner to individual customers. Due to the large number of automation options, it is therefore necessary to enable the automatic assignment of authorizations down to the lowest execution level (individual workflows). With the extended role-based access control, you can now decide for yourself which users are assigned which roles and thus authorization objects.



EXTENDED SYSTEM DEPENDENCY MANAGEMENT



Interdependent systems are a common use case in an SAP landscape. This can either be multi-tenant SAP HANA databases with their associated SAP systems, an SAP system with an associated web dispatcher or SAP systems with technical dependencies among one another. In order for the user to be able to handle the system operations efficiently, automatics offers the possibility to correctly identify such dependencies in the various use cases, to define system sequences and thus to automate them efficiently.


In addition, automatics identifies cluster configurations so that passive SAP instances can also be recognized and taken into account in the process.




CUSTOM WORKFLOW EXTENSIONS


By extending and integrating with Ansible, you can handle any custom extensions even more easily. With the Ansible Playbooks and the provision of numerous collections, the interaction with the infrastructure and peripheral systems (web requests) is even easier for you. Furthermore, automatics offers the possibility to integrate automatics-internal information (from the CMDB) about functions, variables and permissions into custom task scripts.



PATCH THE DIAGNOSTIC AGENT JVM


Since the Diagnostic Agent cannot automatically patch its SAP JVM, automatics supports this! Automatics fully automates the patching process of the SAP JVM:

  • Checking the SAP JVM manifest file for version correctness

  • Creation of a new directory for the new SAP JVM

  • Extraction of the patch file using SAPCAR

  • Backup of original version

  • Set the necessary profile parameters to the new SAP JVM version

  • Restart Diagnostic Agent Service and Instance

  • Registration of the new component in the Solution Manager




OUTLOOK FOR 2023.09
